We’ve had a string of good days around here… a beautiful addition to the family in Baby V (Mom is on her way to California right now to meet her new grandbaby!) and then I also got good news from work yesterday. After many months of doing the work, I got promoted to a new manager position. Still lots of records and archives and papers and boxes, but with a shiny new title!
It was a call for a happy celebration. Vegan style.
Pumpkin pie with a pistachio/graham crust, whipped cream, maple coulis and pomegranate seeds… ooh, the delight! All thanks to the local vegan eatery, Great Sage! Oh, you know I love to bake and cook, but I also enjoy when others bake and cook for me
In my last post, I mentioned the box of goodies that I sent off to California for Mimi and for Baby V. I included the Komb blanket, the cardigans, a little hat, and some various things I picked up for lil’ niece. Realizing that I was not able to finish Mimi’s cardigan by V’s birth, I whipped up a quick hat for my sister. Spreading the handknit love to the mommy as well as the baby! … and since Mimi is way over there, and I am way over here, you get me modeling the hat… hopefully I will have photos of her wearing it soon.
Pattern: Root Vegetable from Knit One, Embellish Too [book] by Cosy
Yarn: Handspun Merino/Angora blend from MDSW ’09,
Needles: Size US 9
I embellished the hat with about 15 small turquoise buttons. They are randomly placed around the hat – it turned out quite cute! Mimi told me she really liked it, and I hope it keeps her nice and warm.
